DAT/Artathon: Turning risk data into visual art
Thursday, Dec 03, UTC 02:00 to 02:55
Organizer: University of New Mexico, Stanford Urban Resilience Initiative, Earth Observatory of Singapore
|Data art has the power to evoke emotions while simultaneously conveying information on risk and resilience to a wider audience. Risk data is often trapped in long reports and articles that never reach key stakeholders who we truly want to reach: at-risk communities and leaders who can invoke positive change. How can we support young professionals and early career researchers who want to bridge this divide?|
Join us as we share the outputs from the 2020 Risk and Resilience DAT/Artathon–a collaborative and constructive virtual workshop to create disaster data art and identify best practices in data visualization when using disaster data. This 3-week virtual workshop brought together a cohort of early career risk and resilience data visualizers to share skills, build an inclusive cohort, and work on their own individual projects.
We will feature projects from the DAT/Artathon workshop and engage in a lively panel discussion with members of this year’s cohort.
